Seafood Shack has been taken over by a new company this year. Instead of opening, they should have used this summer season to re-group and organize themselves for next year. There is limited staff in both the kitchen and in the dining area. We waited one night for an hour to be served. Other than water, we did not receive... More

This place had the potential to be great however after the Singh arrest they are now remanaged with no liquor license, a very limited menu, poor service and no fans for the bugs.

The view would be even better if it was on the ocean side rather than the bay. Don't go expecting gourmet dining and you won't be disappointed.

Be prepared to wait and wait for your food! Food was descent not bad but for the prices I had expected more. We arrived with a minimal wait to be seated but the staff appears confused ate best. 15 minutes to get taken to table after they told us our table was ready. Once seated 15-20 minutes for waiter to... More

I almost feel like I am on vacation when I am here. The seating is outdoors under a tent right off of the beach on the bay side. Sunset is the best time to be there. However, the menu is limited and overpriced. The taste is lackluster... nothing special. But the view is pretty good.

On a cool evening; it's a nice environment with calming views. The menu is extremely limited and the good al tastes as if it comes out of a microwave. There is also a limited selection of wine. If you want a drink by the water; it's a nice environment; but I would not recommend the food.

It's all about the location and view. It goes downhill after that. Although we admittedly went with a large group on a Sunday and were seated promptly, it took a full hour for our food to come out from the time we placed our order. Wouldn't have been so bad except we had five children in our group under the... More

I was at the Seafood Shack for lunch yesterday and could not believe the increase in prices. A salad, composed mostly of lettuce, was $13 and adding 4 shrimp to that salad was an additional $12! Ridiculous! With iced tea and a tip, my friend and I each ended up spending $36 for lunch! I have been eating at the... More

The beachside location is fabulous, the menu is boring and the food is not great. Each year we keep giving it a try but most times its a dissapointment.

You would think that it would be hard to screw up with a beach view at your restaurant. OMG this place and the Salsa Shack next door have the worst possible service and kitchen management. Eat on the main land
